Changes to Administration of the DSCKE

Following a recent change to the admission requirements for Dental Specialty Assessment Training Programs (DSATPs) at Canadian Faculties of Dentistry, the NDEB has determined that it will no longer offer the Dental Specialty Core Knowledge Examination (DSCKE).

On September 8, 2023 the NDEB will administer the last DSCKE. Registration will open on May 2, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. EST.

Individuals interested in taking the September 2023 DSCKE are recommended to create their DSCKE application and submit all of the required documents before June 1, 2023 to allow time for credential verification. Before submitting documentation, we encourage candidates to carefully read the application guide on our How to apply webpage.

Individuals with questions about the required documents are encouraged to contact the credential verification department which can provide assistance in understanding the application requirements. To schedule an appointment, visit our website.
